'I think it would mean a lot' | Tee Higgins ready to represent Oak Ridge in the Super Bowl

Higgins went from dominating the high school scene, winning back-to-back Mr. Football awards, to now having a breakout year in the NFL.

LOS ANGELES — Oak Ridge native Tee Higgins is ready to represent his hometown in the Super Bowl on Sunday.

"I think it would mean a lot for the city back home and hopefully I can get it done," the Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver said in a press conference on Friday afternoon about bringing a title back to this area.

Higgins has over 1,000 yards receiving and six touchdowns on the season as he has played a big part in his team's success.

The wideout won back-to-back Mr. Football awards at Oak Ridge High School before playing college football at Clemson. He won a national title in his second year there and now will try to win a Super Bowl in his second year as a pro.

Higgins will try to win it all on Sunday with the Bengals against the Los Angeles Rams. The kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m. and the game can be watched on WBIR.
